    Looks good. A bit of constructive critisism though. A "can" is not a very good measurement for an instuctable, Content may vary a lot between brands and between different countries.

    That is true, I've used both, 14.25 and 16 ounce can of whole and cream style corn, the mexicorn is a 12 ounce can, the Alfredo is 16 ounces. I will fix all the measurements today, thanks so much for the feedback.
